with the growing threat from the neighboring syria. 400 troops will join nato forces and stand ready to act if syria intends to unleash chemical weapons. fox's leland vittert is in our middle east bureau. leland, just a few days ago the head of nato said the assad regime is about to collapse. why deploy these troops now? >> reporter: it really has to do with showing solidarity with the turks who are clearly very scared and timing comes a couple days after we learned that the syrians were mixing chemical weapons to possibly use. so this is the united states and nato's way of really get being behind turkey, a close ally saying we support you. the secretary of defense was quick to point out that the patriot missiles are just that, defensive weapons that will be put down along the syrian border to protect syria, protect turkey from attacks by syrian jets or scud missiles that would fly in but that is not exactly the whole story. the patriots could be easily programmed and put in a no-fly zone over northern syria. so far turkey is denying that as is nato saying this is purely defensive move by t

to the media. >>> syria's ruthless regime may have little time left. president assad is losing his country's bloody civil war and now the foreign ministry denies that statement this morning. the rebels are outside the capital and gaining ground, but many groups with competing interests among the ranks and assad's fall would not mean an end to the fighting. >> don't really have a good sense. to the extent that external organizations are in there in some extremist form, the worry is the retribution afterwards and access to chemical weapons. >> this week, the u.s., europe and allies recognized the opposition, which could speed up international aid. but some factions of the rebels are known to have ties to al qaeda. that is the lingering question, you knock out the leader, but what is left, building a new country sometimes is the more difficult part compared to getting rid of the dictator. look at egypt and the mess they're going through. >> but the state department is encouraging russia to withdraw their support and join with the u.s. in implementing a political transition. that has not happe

. >> one of the big challenges for the next secretary of state will be syria and our own mccormick spoke with secretary panetta and learned he is sending two missile batteries to turkey including 400 members of the u.s. military to help. does that signal a greater u.s. military involvement? >> what it signals is turkey is a member of nato. i have just come from turturkey. it has very serious issues with the number of refugees coming in. as a nato member we are really have to and want to and are committed to defending turkey so i think it is a 98nato issue and shows a sign we do not want the problems in syria to spread outside the borders. >> if in fact they begin to move chemical weapons, what should the united states and turkey and other country do so? >> people are very concerned about the use of the chemical weapons and also lack of control over them. and i think that there again, there will be -- president obama has made very clear that that is a line. and i think that there probably will be nato looking at it in a variety of -- >> looking at it meaning? >> more d

is making plans to evacuate thousands of russian citizens from syria. the fallout of assad would also be a huge blow to his other allies, iran and the terror group hezbollah. "the fox report's" correspondent jonathan hunt live in our new york city newsroom now. jonathan, this change of tone from the hutions seems to be very significant. >> yeah it, certainly is. because russia remember has been president bashar assad's greatest ally and protecter. if they are changing their tone now, accepting that the rebels are getting closer and closer to assad's power center in damascus through the violence that we have seen intensifying over the last couple of weeks, it signifies that the russians are realizing that their greatest friend in the middle east is about to be out of power and they better pretty quickly start making some new friends among the rebel opposition. officials say they are simply pleased to see the russians finally facing up to reality, listen. >> we agree that assad will not be a part of syrians future. we have noted as the media has the progress that the opposition has been
from libya to syria. anothere going to have mass because the administration is not honest with the american people. this man has been lying to us, and pour misses rice is the one who will suffer for it. if a americans will open their eyes and do a little research, they will see that when everything is said and done and the truth comes out, the orders were all coming from the white house. president obama and she was the one that was thrown under the boss, just like he has done with everybody else in his life. you are good for a little bit, and once you are not i will throw you out. host: thank you for the call. from "usa today." a statement from john kerry. this is eric from decatur, georgia. caller: good morning. the lady that just spoke, i believe she is totally wrong. i think this thing is about the color of the president and the color of somebody you want appointed to a high position. these republicans cannot deal with the fact this country is moving forward. to disregard the middle class and the poor. host: let me go back to scott wilson who has a side bar story on "th
interventionist like susan rice is. >> no. >> if you want to harm rebels in libya or syria, susan rice. >> since you've been covering this so closely, take us through the evolution because president obama and the white house were so defiant. and remember that one press conference where he came out very sternly talking about how much he admired ambassador rice. how did we get to yesterday? was this all from susan rice, or was there a little nudge from the white house as well? >> well, it's unclear as to whether there was a nudge, but certainly she was reading the tea leaves. and it was pretty clear for the last two weeks that the president was not as forceful as he was on that day, november 14th. when john mccain had said very bluntly on the hill, she is not going to get confirmed, and the president then had his first news conference after being re-elected and just came out so strongly, dramatically and emphatically, he was angry, and they're still angry in the white house about the way mccain and company, they think ganged up on her. i was also told that he might not have stuck with her as long
for another president. i think some of the other things will come up though. john kerry's views on syria where he said we could deal with bashar assad previously. wanted to have accommodation with him. now we know that is totally wrong. you will see some of those issues vet the but i don't know how much the senate really wants to fight again over vietnam. jon: what about foreign policy, let's say he gets the job as john kerry undersecretary of state. what do you see happening? >> i don't see much difference between what we've seen. this administration runs foreign policy mostly out of the white house. it has for four years. i think it would for another four years. john kerry would be able to advise at the margins, maybe somewhat less hawkishly than hillary clinton has, believe it or not. he is very reluctant to intervene overseas, for example. militarily he likes to defer to the united nations. in that sense not much of a change from barack obama. >> very quickly on the political calculation though, the white house generally woip think about nominating a senator if they didn't feel they could
